Microsoft updates Cortana for Android with improved notifications settings

Microsoft has updated its Cortana app on Android with a few minor improvements that should make life a bit easier with the digital assistant on devices running Google's operating system.

The release notes for the new update, listed as version on Google Play, mention three tweaks to improve the app:

  • Edit your favorite places in settings
  • Control your notification settings
  • Fixed accidental opt-out issue

Curiously, Google Play on some Android devices is actually showing the release notes for version 2.0.2, which was released in December, even when upgrading from 2.1.6 to 2.1.7:

We're not the only ones to have experienced that quirky issue, despite the listing correctly showing 2.1.7 as the "current version" of the app - our friends over at The Digital Lifestyle also spotted the old release notes on Google Play.

The latest update comes after Microsoft discontinued support for its Band 2 in Cortana for Android with version 2.1.5 last month.
